Christians faced increased hostilities in Sudan over the past few weeks, culminating in an attack on a Christian compound in Khartoum by a throng of Muslim extremists armed with clubs, iron rods, a bulldozer and fire. The assailants set fire to the Gerief West Bible School and the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church building; also damaging three other places of worship and other buildings in the same compound. Also damaged were a clinic, a home for the elderly, classrooms and living quarters. Authorities held the mob back about a kilometer from the compound, but the assailants dispersed and found their way back early in the afternoon. All the Bible school’s office equipment, library books and students’ personal belongings were destroyed by fire. Some students, staff and members of some of the churches were beaten.
